What's Growing at Metcalfe Village branch

Planter containing tomato, strawberry and petunia plants

Check out what's growing at Metcalfe Village branch! 

Our fabulous volunteer gardeners have filled our outdoor planters with a selection of plants including strawberries, tomatoes, and petunias.  Right now we have a few strawberries ripe for picking!  We can't wait for later in the summer when we'll be able to try some of the cherry tomatoes.

It doesn't take much space to grow your own fruits and veggies.  To learn more about gardening, check out some of the gardening books available at the Metcalfe Village branch:
